I'm trying to build a rig that is somewhat easy to move and durable, but at the same time maintaining upgradability down the line. I want to be able to run current gen games on ultra ranging from 720p-1080p resolutions depending on where I'm located. My current concerns is if the processor will be sufficient for some light photoshop art using a wacom tablet. I also wish to have the ability to record gameplay at high settings with at least 30fps. Also, will the power supply be sufficient for overclocking and a possible sli upgrade down the line? Criticism is much appreciated! I'm willing to bring the price up to $1700 if there are components that offer a significant performance increase. Thanks for the help all.

If you haven't noticed, I'm trying to maintain the color scheme of the motherboard.
